In an earlier post, I pointed out that I like to keep my income flowing in several different currencies. One of the places I frequent to keep my UK pounds income up is the PeazyShop.
Here's a quick run down of how they work:
Basically, PeazyShop will pay 10p for each useful forum post you make in their specified topics. The topics change fairly frequently, so there's plenty of variety to write about.
On top of basic forum-posting, they'll also pay 40p per shopping review and 20p for posting about any bargains you might have found online.
They don't sound like large amounts of money, but remember you're being paid in GBP (UK pounds sterling), so once the money hits your PayPal account, the exchange rate will show you a much nicer sum of money than you thought you were getting.
Here's an example:
Let's say you wrote 25 posts @ 10p per post = ₤2.50
Then you submitted three shopping reviews @ 40p each = ₤1.20
And you post about four great bargain sites you found = ₤0.80
You've got a total of ₤4.50 - but if you convert it to US dollars, it's $8.93
Of course, I could also change it to Australian dollars (because that's where I am) and my little ₤4.50 becomes $9.88
(well, that's what the rates are today - they will change from day to day depending on the exchange rate)
Not bad extra cash for 30 minutes of quick, easy work each day before getting into work on a longer, more involved article or three!
If you'd like to earn a bit of extra money and boost your foreign currency income a bit, give PeazyShop a go. They're a lot of fun!
